I'm currently on an Ortho/Neuro unit at my hospital and have been for a little over a year. My ultimate goal is to move to post-partum, but that unit has VERY rare openings, so who knows how long it could take to make that jump.
There's currently an opening on the Peds unit, the first I've seen since I started here. It would put me in close contact with the PP unit and staff and possibly be a way to get my foot in the door for an eventual move there, at least moreso than being on Ortho/Neuro.
My main question is this... what are some of the main cons to working on a Peds unit as opposed to an adult unit? We didn't really have a Peds time in school, so I didn't really get a lot of exposure to it. I'm not a mother myself yet, so I can't relate personal experience here, either. (Though I will be soon... due in November.)
I guess I'm just not sure what to really expect and what the big differences would be. Then again, it could be the pregnancy clouding my brain, too.
